» Downloads & Basic Metadata

Summary

Uncharred plant stem fragments from a shipwreck were submitted for phytolith analysis to determine if this material represents grass, sedge, or other plants that produce phytoliths/biogenic silica. The stem fragments are believed to have been used for packing cargo. A portion of the stem material was submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating to provide temporal information.
